Now that I have arrived at Bulguk Temple, as long as the time is not so tight, I should come to Seokguram. The half-hour winding mountain road is also a rare experience. but! Although the significance of Seokguram is very important and the statues of Buddha are very beautiful, it can’t be seen clearly, because the entire grotto is already enclosed in a glass “showcase”...There are only two bodhisattvas in a circle on the four walls, the most beautiful. The eleven-faced Guanyin statue is completely blocked by the main Buddha statue, so when you go to the Gyeongju Museum, let's take a closer look at the rubbings in the Buddhist Museum.
Because Seokguram is on the mountain, and the mountains are winding roads, it is indeed a bit motion sickness. At that time, we took a taxi to save time and energy. It cost about 120 yuan. . . Then I took a taxi to the museum. It's really a bit far away, because there is only one day in Gyeongju, so of course it is mainly about saving time. (Friends who want to take a taxi must write down the destination they are going to in Korean, because Gyeongju’s drivers don’t speak English) Gyeongju is divided into New Gyeongju and Old Gyeongju City. New Gyeongju is really nothing to see. But the old Gyeongju City is really beautiful and surprised me. It is well protected. There are no high-rise buildings or dense residential areas around it. It is dominated by individual homestays. The greenery is very good and the air is fresh. Rice fields are everywhere. Trees, lawns, and the sky are always two-layered colors, and large patches of cloud thorns are dazzling~
Shikuan: Very small, so it is a small temple in China. Many people say that Mogao Grottoes and Longmen Grottoes do not know where they are higher than here, but there are still some unique features here. Buddhism grottoes in other parts of the world are all carved into mountains. Seokguram is a man-made grotto, that is, a stone chamber is built first, and then covered with stones and soil to form a mountain, and finally an man-made grotto is formed. The door of the cave is in the small temple in Figure 5, and the entrance is a structure of "outer square and inner circle". A few years ago, I could go in and see, but now I’m not allowed to go, I can only look through the glass. I have to say that this is a pity. Figure 7 shows the connection method of the stone blocks in Seokguram. The bottom stones are connected by iron pieces, and the upper stones are mostly put together. Figure 3 is a big bell, knocking at 5 yuan, but ringing the bell is meaningless. The point is that there is the best viewing platform, and the Sea of Japan (10 kilometers away) can be seen when the visibility is high. But the visibility is very average today.
Seokguram is located in Tuhan Mountain, Gyeongju City, and Bulguksa Temple, which is 4 kilometers away, was listed as a World Cultural Heritage in 1995. Seokguram is also Korea's 24th National Treasure. Seokguram and Bulguksa Temple were founded by King Daeseong in the reign of King Jingdeok in Silla. Seokguram was originally called: Shifo Temple, which was built by Jindacheng for his former parents, while Bulguksa Temple was built for his current parents. The size of Seokguram is small, the stones are neatly piled up, and it feels like you are in a cave when you walk in, so it is called Seokguram. The nunnery enshrines the Buddha statue of Sakyamuni. Standing below and looking up at the tall Buddha statue, there will be a sense of sacredness in my heart. Because the position of the Buddha statue is facing the east, the sun will hit the Buddha statue after sunrise, so Koreans call this Buddha statue "Silla people's smile."
The Atomic Bomb Dome is located in the center of Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan, on the banks of the Genyasu River. It is the site of a building after the atomic bomb!
